Can NAV 2009 R2 RTC run on a Windows 8 PC or does my customer need to get a Windows 7 PC?

  • Hi,

    NAV 2009 RTC runs fine on windows 8, i am running it at the moment,

    Just ensure that you don't get the home edition which cannot be attached to a Domain

    Cheers

  • Thanks Neville. Is there any Official Microsoft document that lists Windows 8? Current specs that I found on Partner Source only list Windows 7, Vista and XP.

  • Hi Tom

    I just had a search through partner source and a few other places and also don't see anything official, however when Windows 7 Launched it was about 6 months before we saw official compatibility information relating to NAV , so i would expect about the same here

    My guess based on the Win 7 History... March 2013 or soon after we should be seeing compatibility info for NAV and Win 8

    Cheers
